white men. let me play what senator jim webb said to chuck todd on this issue. take a listen. >> how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the party of andrew jackson, only be getting 28 periods of time of the white male working class vote? from my perspective it's because of the interest group politics in the democratic party, that particular cultural group doesn't believe the democrats like that. >> are some white voters turned off by the democratic party? if so, where does the popular clinton factor come in? >> the president is there and will be in ohio for a reason. the president can bring into focus the idea that with the right economic policies and if you stick with it, as we did in 1995 and 1996, prosperity comes along. the real key numbers in ohio are look at the unemployment rate when the president came into office and where it is now. it's down i think nearly 50%. the auto bailout, some of the president's investments in manufacturing have really paid off in ohio, frankly, at the end of the day we can talk back and forth about different demographics. the presiden
fight on her hands. millionaire hotel executive jim graves is spending big time to take down the tea party favorite and the polls are tightening in the process. >>> and here's an interesting tidbit that you can share with your friends. the total spending of the 2012 election will beat the previous record by $700 million. and are you ready for this? 2012 election spending altogether will reach a whopping $6 billion. unreal. >>> speaking of spending big bucks, this maryland man knows exactly when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em. in fact, he's got over 8 million reasons to prove it. >>> our large west coast storm continues to push into oregon. i'll show you who it's going to affect next. you're watching "early today." >>> stories making news this morning. authorities say four people were shot at a halloween party on the campus of the university of southern california. one of them is in critical condition. police say two people are in custody. >>> "the washington post" reports that the obama administration has been in talks to build a new syrian opposition leadership to stop the violenc
rally in new hampshire, and now he is headed the iowa. our national political correspondent jim acosta was there in portsmouth, new hampshire. >> reporter: mitt romney has kicked off his swing state blitz in this final weekend of the presidential campaign starting the day in new hampshire and then heading next to iowa and colorado. we're hearing the gop nominee touch on some themes that he's been bringing up quite a bit in the last couple of days, saying he is the candidate of what he calls real change. he's also going through his five-point economic plan to get the country back on track, talking about ideas like cutting the deficit, tapping into domestic energy resources and fixing the nation's public school system. but one thing that he has been trying to zero in on in this final stretch of the campaign, he's been going after the president's mantel, being a post-partisan president. in the words of mitt romney, the president has been what he calls the most partisan. here's what he had to say. >> yesterday, the president said something you might have heard by now that i think surprised

website, c-span.org. jim is in orlando, florida. he's on our line for independents. jim, you're optimistic about the economy. why is that? caller: i'm optimistic after the election. i think that a lot of companies have been holding out hiring this year. i think it all comes back to the money. and when i say the money, a lot of the billionaires, when they see that their taxes are going from 14% to 36%, they're going to do whatever they can to make sure that the president looks bad as far as this year. when you look historically, the first quarter of the year is usually slow. we had a good first quarter. in the second two quarters, jobs have been anemic. i think the last two or three years, we slowly climbed out of this mess, and it will take, as clinton said, another four years to get out of it. but i do see some positives. host: jim, do you really think that business owners are going to risk profits and losses based on trying to make the president look bad? caller: i don't think business owners are. i think that big corporations that have billionaire stockholders -- if my taxes were going

're sfeng pen so much time in ohio. let's take a view right now from the ground level. jim acosta is with the romney campaign in north canton, ohio. brian brianna keilar is at the white house. is the romney campaign showing any signs of concern over their ability to win ohio? >> i just talked to a senior romney advisor who said no, they are going to win ohio, but he did say this race in this state is going to come down to independents. whoever wins independents in the words of this romney advisor, that candidate is going to win ohio. now, there's a little bit of spin in that because if you look at recent polling like an abc news/"washington post" poll that came out yesterday, governor romney is doing well among independent voters so it makes sense they would be talking about that advantage right now. at the same time, there are signs that yes, the romney campaign is concerned about this state and talking a little bit about what john king was mentioning a few moments ago about the auto bailout, we heard one of romney's top surrogates, rob portman, defend mitt romney's stance on the

spoke with the former head of the republican party of florida, a guy named jim greer who is in his own trouble over charges about some illegal money thing that he was doing, but when he was running the party he told me that republican consultants came to him and said, we want to craft a bill that would get rid of early voting if we could, or severely cut it, because in the words of these consultants, according to jim greer, all it does is bring every african-american out from under a rock, that's a quote, and get them to vote for democrats. they don't vote for us, it doesn't help us. so the republican legislature which in 2010 became more tea party, more conservative, there's no margin in it for them to increase access to in-person early voting. what they did is passed a law that didn't touch absentee voting, which republicans tend to dominate in, but severely limited the early vote. just to give you some numbers, you're talking about there were 96 hours, there are 96 hours this year total to vote. there were 120 hours in 2008. and already in the state, 3.46 million people have voted.

. they shall walk and not >> i'm congressman jim mcgovern from massachusetts. when eleanor roosevelt died it was said that i've lost more than a friend, i've lost an inspiration and that's the way i feel today. deep down i know george mcgovern is in a better place. he's with eleanor and terri and steve. who knows, he may even be president. but for so many of us it is difficult to say goodbye. it was always comforting to know that he was around reminding us we can do better, making it seem possible we could end all wars, eliminate hunger and poverty and create a world where all god's children are respected valued and loved. in 1972 as a seventh grader in massachusetts i did what i could to elect him president of the united states which i remind you all he did win massachusetts. [applause] [applause] i was later an intern in his senate office and i had the privilege to work with the incredible staff he assembled in washington d.c. and south dakota, some of the finest people i have ever known. we weren't related it was just a co-incidence we both had the same last name. but people would tell

the charts in name recognition. she raised $18 million more than her democratic opponent jim graves. her district has an 8% republican registration edge but still she only leads graves by 6 points. florida congressman allen west, he's raised $17 million compared to the $3.5 million of his democratic opponent patrick murphy. but polls show murphy leading west 48% to 47%. and, of course, we just cannot forget illinois congressman joe walsh -- perhaps the craziest of them all. he's answering a question about women's reproductive rights. take a listen. >> if a woman's life is at issue, would you say she was allowed to have a abortion? >> let me say there's no sun exception. with modern technology and science, you can't find one instance. this is an issue that opponents of life throw out there to make us look unreasonable. >> jennifer: actually, congressman, i think you're doing a pretty good job of looking unreasonable on your own. fortunately, voters in walsh's district agree because the latest polls have him trailin

refrain there. >> can you have it, actually. i don't think i'll be doing that again. >> mike allen and jim from politico reported chris christie was the number one choice for mitt romney at one point, he went to london for the olympics, came back and ended up picking paul ryan. there's a lot of bad blood right now between the romney campaign and the chris christie folks and we're seeing that spill out here right in the last couple of days. >> you know, let me inject. i've not plugged into the romney campaign like "the politico" guys. i know about christie. i'm skeptical of the idea that there ever was a moment when romney was going to pick christie for this. it seems cute that it's coming out at this moment. jonathan i want to ask you about demographics heading in to this tuesday. seems like there's basically a test that we're going to find out. can obama win re-election with a historically small share of the white vote which basically means will the nonwhite vote share of the electorate rise to new levels that will allow him to survive, like latino support and black support. obama people

that massive fire was breaking out. jim clancy has an update for us in belmar, new jersey this morni morning. i've run through a lot of the damage. tell me a little bit about belmar. >> reporter: well, you know, belmar, like so many other places, hard hit. the local newspapers, you know, put it into perspective. this was the headline in this morning's edition. swept away. little bit of a note, though, on the political side. it says a national commitment to rebuild, referencing the visit of president barack obama and the governor, of course, chris christie. some people taking some hope from all of that. today, people have seen what the devastation is. they recognize for many, many people, their homes are gone forever. they were literally swept away. but for others, there's damage to be repaired. there are cities here to be rebuilt. these are the barrier islands. and the people who live here know the risk that they face. right here at the end of this street that is under about five feet of water right now, front end loaders trying to push debris out of the storm drains. they're going to bring in
